Make Baby’s first beach day a winner from the first time he dips those tiny toes in the water to the end of the day when you take home an exhausted, sandy bundle with these must-haves. You’ll find everything you need (and more!) for a great beach day here, from a sun tent to swim diapers. Don’t forget your SPF!

The Best in Sun Protection

Keep your little one's sensitive skin shaded with a wide-brimmed hat - we love this one because If it gets wet during a swim, the fabric will dry quickly. Then add a sun protective rash guard or suit. Hanna Andersson offers a variety of colors and prints all in a fabric that blocks 99 percent of the sun's rays.

Available online at, $22 and up.
